Fudge is one of my favorite treats in the world and every time I have it I think how lucky I am that it's not readily available most of the year, because I'd probably be double my current weight otherwise. :) Fudge is usually all about the chocolate for me, but this one from Taste of Home caught my eye for its unique butterscotch flavor. It came together quickly and was simple creamy, butterscotchy goodness with a touch of maple.
For other fudgy yumminess, also see Mom's Peanut Butter Fudge recipe and one of my favorites....Rocky Road Fudge Bars.
1 teaspoon, plus 2 tablespoons butter, divided
1-2/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 package (10-11 ounces) butterscotch chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tsp. maple flavoring
Directions: Line an 8-inch square pan with foil and grease the foil with 1 teaspoon butter, set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, salt, and remaining 2 tablespoons butter; cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
Remove from the heat; add the marshmallows, butterscotch chips, nuts, and maple flavoring.
Stir until marshmallows and chips are melted. Spoon into prepared pan.
Let stand until set.
